If I were to ask you what you thought of ‘talent acquisition’, you would most likely imagine the recruitment cycle and the process of attracting and hiring the right people, with the right skills and experience to meet the needs or requirements of the business. However, talent acquisition is not just about “filling vacant positions”; it is much more and has developed into an important function of any business.

The value of talent acquisition for businesses is now a topic of discussion across the market. Companies are questioning the return on investment for their recruitment efforts and whether talent acquisition is worth the costs associated. There is a growing concern that the current economic climate may not be able to invest in talent acquisition and that businesses will focus more on cost-cutting measures.

However, with the uncertainty and dynamic conditions of the market, talent acquisition becomes even more crucial than ever. Companies are looking more for individuals who possess certain skill sets that are not just relevant to their business environment but also can help them adapt to changing market conditions and help businesses thrive. Furthermore, many experts argue that talent acquisition remains an essential function and it is clear to see that, Hitachi Solutions, as an employer, holds the same belief.

It is essential to us that we continue to enhance diversity and inclusion, drive innovation and growth, and improve overall business performance. But one of the key benefits of our talent acquisition strategy is our focus on building an even stronger employer brand in order to generate long-term success. We understand that talents and job seekers are looking for more than just a pay check – they want to work for a company that shares their values, supports their growth and development, and provides a positive and inclusive workplace culture – and that is where the talent acquisition function helps. All in all, this generates a strong employer brand that does not only help businesses to stand out in a competitive job market but also increases security and stability for our people.

Our people are a crucial aspect of our values, culture and employer brand – Our people are what makes us exceptional!

Hitachi Solutions are committed to continuing to create a positive and inclusive workplace culture that supports growth and development. If you are interested in learning about our values, processes and the opportunities we have to offer, please get in touch and keep an eye out for future updates and changes.
